Chapter 510: Exchange

    Chapter 510: Exchange

    Translator: CKtalon  Editor: CKtalon

    There were more than ten disciples gathered outside Qin Yun's compound in Green Touring Palace. These disciples were some of the best in Green Touring Palace. Even the weakest was at Demon King Bear Mountain's strength. After all, there was no way one could approach Qin Yun regarding the White Jade Token without sufficient treasure; if they did, they would only asking for a rebuff.

    "Creak." The door opened as Qin Yun walked out and took a look outside.

    They were either Great Demon Kings, Heavenly Courts officials, or powerful immortals. There were three with strength at the half-step Golden Immortal realm.

    "Greetings, Senior Brothers and Sisters." Qin Yun cupped his hands and bowed.

    "Junior Brother Qin." The group of Green Touring Palace demons and humans smiled at Qin Yun. For many of them, this was their first time meeting him.

    "Junior Brother Qin, we heard that you obtained the Lightning Beast Manor's White Jade Token." A fox immortal dressed in a beautiful gown smiled coquettishly at Qin Yun with a gorgeous charm. "We came here to ask. A total of six cultivators can enter with this White Jade Token. Junior Brother Qin... how do you plan on allocating the six spots?"

    The others looked at Qin Yun too, unperturbed.

    After all, all of them were of high stature. They were able to maintain their composure.

    "I, Qin Yun, take up a spot myself. Naturally, the other five spots will be sold," said Qin Yun with a smile.

    The ten plus humans and demons around him nodded slightly when they heard that.

    Thankfully...

    He did not plan on monopolizing it!

    "Junior Brother Qin, might I know what sort of price is required before you would sell the spot to us?" asked a Skydragon with a face full of red scales.

    Qin Yun swept his gaze and smiled. "Senior Brothers and Sisters, since all of you are here, I will make it clear. I presently require Connate Wonders! In order to get a White Jade Token spot, only an offer of a Connate Wonder will be accepted. As long as the Connate Wonder you produce satisfies me, you will win a spot."

    "Connate Wonder?" Everyone present had a change in expression.

    "A spot can't be worth several Connate Wonders," said the fox demoness senior sister with a frown.

    "Your offer just needs to match relatively," said Qin Yun with a faint smile.

    The humans and demons exchanged looks. Connate Wonders? Most of them did not have one!

    ...

    "What? A Connate Wonder is needed for the exchange?"

    "This Junior Brother Qin has quite a massive appetite!"

    "If there's a willing buyer and seller, what has this got to do with you?"

    "When it's something mutual, all I can do is be envious. Envious of Junior Brother Qin."

    "I also wish to obtain a spot to enter the Lightning Beast Manor. Unfortunately, I do not have that chance. I have heard of Connate Wonders, but I have never seen one."

    "Even if Junior Brother Qin was willing to take supreme-grade Numinous treasures in exchange for a White Jade Token spot, one spot would be worth at least ten supreme-grade Numinous treasures! Who among you can afford that?"

    "Not me."

    "I don't even have one supreme-grade Numinous treasure."

    Many disciples in Green Touring Palace sighed regretfully. To most of the disciples that were still bottlenecked at the sixth firmament Skyimmortal realm, how was it possible to produce ten supreme-grade Numinous treasures? Even most ninth firmament Skyimmortals were incapable of doing so.

    While the disciples engaged in a flurry of discussion, a figure stood in the distance silently. It was none other than Ancestral Master Zhang.

    "White Jade Token?" Ancestral Master Zhang frowned slightly. "That Connate Spirit Fruit, Lightning Fruit, would be very useful to my Divine Firmament Lightning Dharma. Unfortunately... I can't afford the price of the White Jade Token spot."

    Ancestral Master Zhang shook his head gently and turned to leave.

    ******

    In Qin Yun's compound in Green Touring Palace.

    Qin Yun sat alone drinking as he waited for a distinguished guest.

    "Many people in the Three Realms will definitely want the chance to enter the Lightning Beast Manor. It definitely won't be difficult to use this opportunity to exchange for Connate Wonders." Qin Yun was very confident.

    Knock! Knock! Knock!

    There was a series of knocks on the door.

    "That fast?" Qin Yun was somewhat astonished as he got up and went over. He opened the door to see a white-robed man standing outside.

    "Senior Brother Sa." Qin Yun was somewhat astonished. "Senior Brother Sa, please come in."

    Sa Xu chuckled before walking in. He did not sit and instead turned to look at Qin Yun. "There are six spots and I have the Water of the First Essence. I want a spot. Can the Water of the First Essence be used for the exchange?"

    "Yes," said Qin Yun immediately. "Senior Brother Sa, we previously agreed upon ten drops of Water of the First Essence... You have given me three drops previously, so I can still exchange another seven drops with you. How about exchanging a spot for seven drops of Water of the First Essence?"

    Sa Xu shook his head gently.

    Qin Yun was taken aback.

    "Don't worry. I won't be taking advantage of you," said Sa Xu indifferently. He was a proud person, so how could he take advantage of Qin Yun?

    "You can't call that taking advantage," replied Qin Yun.

    "According to what I know, there is one Connate Lightning Fruit Tree in the Lightning Beast Manor. In eighty-one thousand years, nine fruits will ripen. If six people were to enter and undergo the Chaos Lightning Beast's test, each person will get at least one fruit, and at most four," said Sa Xu.

    Qin Yun nodded. "Yes, the opportunity left behind by Bai Xiao was meant to tie people to karma after benefiting from him... In the future, they are to kill enemies to avenge him. Therefore, among the six who enter, whoever has the highest chance of avenging him will receive relatively more fruits, but even so, everyone would get at least one fruit. However, it has been more than two hundred thousand years since the White Jade Token has last appeared. The Lightning Fruit Tree has ripened thrice, so there are twenty-seven fruits."

    "Yes, it has ripened three times. With six people entering, each person will obtain at least three fruits. And it's even possible for someone to get more than ten," said Sa Xu calmly. "If it's an ordinary ninth firmament Skyimmortal, using seven drops of Water of the First Essence to exchange for a spot with you would be considered normal, but for me... it's not that I'm arrogant. But I will obtain far more than three fruits in the Lightning Beast Manor. It's even possible for me to obtain ten."

    Qin Yun nodded slightly.

    Senior Brother Sa Xu had created the Heavenly Constellation Lightning Dharma himself. His strength was equivalent to a Golden Immortal mighty figure. It was likely that the Chaos Lightning Beast's test would ultimately allocate him with the most number of fruits.

    The chances of Sa Xu avenging the Chaos Lightning Beast were naturally much higher than the typical ninth firmament Skyimmortal.

    "Here are fifteen drops of Water of the First Essence." Sa Xu threw a jade bottle to Qin Yun.

    "Alright." Qin Yun did not press the issue. He knew Sa Xu's character. He was a proud individual and many fellow disciples in the Green Touring Palace did not even dare speak to him.

    Qin Yun flipped his hand and took out the White Jade Token.

    "Whoosh." With a flick of his finger, Sa Xu infused a wisp of Dharmic powers into the White Jade Token.

    "When do we set off?" Sa Xu asked.

    "I believe it will be soon. Within a year," said Qin Yun.

    "Alright." Sa Xu nodded before turning to leave. Qin Yun sent him to the door.

    From afar, the Green Touring Palace disciples began murmuring in discussion when they saw this.

    ******

    Effulgent Great World. Jade Tripod Sect.

    One of Qin Yun's avatars had long returned to accompany his wife. She had been worried the whole time about his assault on the two Frost Shark Palace brothers.

    Inside the hall.

    "Congratulations Sword Immortal Qin!" Sect Master Jade Tripod and the Dao Protector came to congratulate Qin Yun.

    "You sure are well-informed," said Qin Yun with a smile. He of course knew that the matter regarding the White Jade Token would quickly be known by Sect Master Jade Tripod and company. But he never expected that they would come to congratulate him in less than two hours after he obtained the White Jade Token. The speed at which news spread was indeed fast.

    "Sword Immortal Qin, news of you obtaining the Lightning Beast Manor's White Jade Token has already begun spreading among my Primordial Beginning lineage. We just learned of it," said Sect Master Jade Tripod with a laugh. "We rushed here immediately."

    As Sect Master Jade Tripod was about to continue, he sensed something. He immediately said, "Uncle-Master Fiercefire is here."

    "Uncle-Master Fiercefire? Sword Immortal Qin, we have to leave to receive our uncle-master," said the Dao Protector.

    "Go ahead."

    "Okay."

    The two nodded and rapidly flew out of Qin Yun's cave abode. They flew towards the periphery of the sect's array formation to receive their uncle-master.

    "Brother Yun, do we need to go as well?" asked Yi Xiao.

    "There's no need. We aren't from the Primordial Beginning lineage. It's best we do not involve ourselves in matters regarding their Primordial Beginning lineage."

    Yi Xiao nodded but could not help but say, "He comes right after you obtained the White Jade Token. Would he..."

    "I will adopt the necessary measures depending on the situation," said Qin Yun.

    "Although Daoist Fiercefire is a ninth firmament Skyimmortal, he is extremely powerful among the third generation Jade Void Palace disciples. With his great divine power, he can match the level of a mighty figure." Yi Xiao was somewhat worried.

    "Don't worry," said Qin Yun.

    And elsewhere.

    Sect Master Jade Tripod and the Dao Protector warmly welcomed Fiercefire.

    "Greetings, Uncle-Master Fiercefire." Sect Master Jade Tripod and the Dao Protector were even more polite than when they met Yang Song. After all, Fiercefire's strength matched that of a Golden Immortal! He was of much higher standing.

    "Okay." Fiercefire had disheveled hair and he wore a golden band around his head. "Is that Qin Yun here?"

    Sect Master Jade Tripod and the Dao Protector were slightly taken aback.

    "Uncle-Master Fiercefire, Sword Immortal Qin is indeed temporarily taking up residence in my Jade Tripod Sect. However, he only has an avatar here," said Sect Master Jade Tripod respectfully.

    "That's good. Lead the way," instructed Fiercefire.

    "Yes." The duo reverently led the way.

    Once they flew close, Qin Yun saw them from afar and exhorted his wife, "Don't come over for now. I'll deal with it."

    "Alright." Yi Xiao nodded.

    Qin Yun came to the entrance of the cave abode. Soon, three figures descended from the sky. In the middle of the trio was Fiercefire.

    "Greetings Immortal Fiercefire, I'm Qin Yun." Qin Yun bowed slightly and was rather polite.

    "Sword Immortal Qin, you sure have good luck." A smile suffused Fiercefire's mouth. "Let's go. We can talk inside."

    "Immortal Fiercefire, please."

    Soon, they entered and sat down. Attendants served some immortal brew.

    Fiercefire leisurely sipped a mouthful of wine and waited for the attendants to leave before saying, "I heard that you obtained the Lightning Beast Manor's White Jade Token?"

    "Yes." Qin Yun nodded.

    "There's no need for you to sell the spots on this White Jade Token any longer. Just give the token to me," said Fiercefire indifferently.

    Sect Master Jade Tripod and the Dao Protector were astounded.

    Qin Yun looked at him as well.

    "Name your conditions! However, do not try to go overboard." Fiercefire looked coldly at Qin Yun in the eye as he continued drinking the wine. "Think about it carefully before answering me."
